Disease Transmission

Identify ways in which pathogens can be transmitted:

They can be spread through skin contact, bodily fluids, airborne particles, contact with feces, and touching a surface touched by an infected person.

Evaluate the difference between inherited and transmitted diseases:

A transmissible disease is a contagious disease wherein the pathogen is transmissible from one host to another. The inherited disease is a genetic problem caused by one or more abnormalities in the genome that can be inherited from parents
